Notes on Action

On the evening of August 4th 1813, the boats of the Milford, 74, and Weazel, 18, under Captain James Black, of the latter, assisted by Lieutenant John Grant, and Lieutenant (E.M.) Kenyon Stevens Parker, landed unperceived at the back of the island of Rogoznica, off the Dalmatian coast; and at daylight on the 5th, British cheers from the top of the highest point of the island saluted the French garrison, which was easily driven out of its works, where six 24-prs. and two 7'5 in. mortars were found and disabled. The party returned without loss to the ships.
